My friend is a Senior and is traveling with his son and finds himself stranded. I am concerned he is not thinking clearly nor managing his affairs appropriately.  What can I do to help?

                 Stranded in Paris and Scared: A Case Study 

The discussion that follows is based on a real-world situation. Claudia was and still is dealing with a long time friend who found himself and his 19-year-old son “stranded in Paris” beginning Christmas of 2017. This issue has not yet been resolved as of April 2018, so there are no pat answers we can provide; we can only elaborate on the issue and reflect on these events and provide some suggestions that may help all of us to avoid similar circumstances to the degree possible. After reading this, if you have a possible solution to this nightmare, please let us know. 

The Challenge as it presented itself: A 57 year old highly trained professional found himself stranded in Paris. His 19-year-old son was over for a Christmas holiday. They had tickets for a flight back to the US, but the father became ill and they missed their flight. The father was robbed and beaten on the streets of Paris sometime following the missed flight.
